Until 1564, the new year was celebrated on April first, based on the Julian calendar, before King Charles IX of France decided that everybody should be following the Gregorian calendar, which starts the new year on the first day of January. Not everyone welcomed this change and some people continued to celebrate April 1 as the first day of the year. Those people were mocked and referred to as April fools. Whatever the case, it became a tradition to do things such as pasting a fish on unsuspecting people's backs on April 1, and calling them a Poisson d'Avril or an April Fish!
